Paris

Visit Paris, Frances capital and largest city! One of the worlds leading cultural centres and ranked in the top three most influential countries in the world, there is no more exhilarating place to visit! You can fly with Austrian Airlines to Paris and when there do not miss out on a visit to the nineteenth-century opera house Opéra Garnier elegant and the sophisticated classical music played there. Or, if opera is not your thing, then make sure to check out the magnificent Eiffel Tower standing at 1063ft over the city centre of Paris. It offers some of the best views of the city centre allowing you to take in the true beauty of this great city! If you are interested in art, make sure to check out the Louvre which is the worlds most visited museum with some of the worlds most prized works of art on show. Forever emblematic in romantic hearts is the "City of Love". It is also held in history buffs' minds as a city rich with history, in the creative as abundant in art, and for fashion plates as the epitome of innovative haute couture. The most common and enriching destinations are the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, the Notre Dame Cathedral, taking in a show at the Moulin Rouge or the Palais Garnier, enjoying an afternoon at the opulent and historic Versailles Palace, or just simply strolling across the bridges along the Seine River and taking in the local cuisine and wine. There are various ways to arrive, and it all depends on your own personal travel plans or budget. There are two primary airports: Charles de Gaulle (CDG), and Paris-Orly Airport (ORY). To make general flights to Paris search regardless of specific airport, use the city code 'PAR'. To better make the most of your budget, keep an eye out on flight and hotel packages and the exchange rates several months in advance to get a feel for the market fluctuations and when to strike on fares. Once in the city, start every morning with a cup of espresso and a crust of baguette, walk everywhere and take in the sights, and buy an affordable pass for their intricate and efficient metro system. Make use of 'S'il vous plait' and 'merci' often. The French aren't as snooty as they're said to be, but manners are always internationally appreciated. By the end, you will be sad to go.

Louvre
There's one thing that you can kiss goodbye: the notion that you can see all this Museum has to offer in one visit. The Louvre boasts a massive 47,000m2 exhibition space. Don't forget to take a map from the front desk because you are sure to get lost amongst the great tomes. With the map in hand, select your favourites and go for it!   The highlight will remain the Mona Lisa for evermore, who now boldly casts her smile from behind a plate of armoured glass. Well at least for those that have the patience to line-up in the queue waiting to see her. The Louvre however has much much more to offer; with ancient Egyptian works, Oriental art, Greek sculptures and 19th century paintings, there's something for people from all walks of life here.

Le Chocolat
At Le Chocolat Alain Ducasse in Paris you can dive into a world of chocolate. Wholeheartedly. Cocoa beans from all over the world - from Peru to Vietnam - are transformed by Nicolas Berger, chef confectioner at Alain Ducasse's worldwide gourmet empire on Rue de la Roquette, into chocolate truffles, bars or ganache.   For his restaurants Ducasse wanted his own chocolate line, beyond industrially produced chocolate masses. That's how the manufacture came into existence, where he serves as the artistic mastermind of taste. Berger provides for the sweet fine-tuning. In a former bank branch behind thick steel doors Berger experiments with an old coffee bean roaster. Not only the equipment is ancient which was specially made for the manufacture, also the interior of the chocolaterie has an antique touch. Both Berger and Ducasse are vintage fans. At Le Chocolat they fulfil their chocolatey promise of felicity - at 100 per cent.

Le clou
If you've had enough of the pomp and flamboyancy of culinary glamour then you should drop by here. It's Le Clou: from the outside you wouldn't guess what culinary delights lie in wait.   This bistro is inconspicuous and ordinarily furnished, even a bit retro, but really cosy in any case. Chef Christian Le Clou has evolved from an industry secret to a star that receives praise in many magazines. The master offers specialties from the Poitou-Charentes region and every dish is a pleasure. The three course set menus start at 35 euros and are worth every penny.
